Okay, I'm slacking....or so I'm told. I've rode my bike pretty regularly since May. I've done a handful of races (12+) and am running practice two sometimes 3 days a week. I change the oil all the time with Maxima Maxum4. HOWEVER, i still haven't checked the valves. Is this BAD? It's starts extremely easy still....cold or hot. Am I being mean to my bike?!?
